We have been staying at La Posada for nearly ten years now including having our guests stay here for our wedding 4 years ago. Sadly, this place has seriously gone downhill. While it was never a luxurious place to stay, the price was right and the staff was friendly & helpful- it was a very charming experience. Also, the free... More

I stayed at the Posada hotel as well as a villa with my husband and some friends and have mixed feelings about the property. The grounds and the beach club are quite nice with an infinity pool overlooking the beach. They also make a myriad of delicious drinks and have good food to have poolside (tons of options to chose...

Lovely Hotel, nice Beach Club to use, just a pity it is on a complex, and if you are on a package, you are restricted. Could do with a shop, or a shuttle to Tamarindo, occasionally, to get a break. No complaints, we were there a week, just planned to get some bits, no go !! Back in uk today,... More

There are quite a few aspects about this property that have the potential to be out of this world. A few things to know about this property, There are several different entities on the same property that work together, but are not affiliated beyond that. The villas on the Hacienda Pinilla property could be awesome, however, the daily maid service... More

There really aren't many places like La Posada at Hacienda Pinilla in this part of Costa Rica. It's a large resort and custom home community near Playa Avellanas which is still in development. I bought a green season rate room which was a good value. I don't know if would be thrilled with the green season rates, however. The rooms... More

The hotel is as good as most previous guests reported. We did have a car so driving to the beach, or to Tamarindo (the closest town) was no problem. Without a car, it would be a challenge. The service was somewhat below the par, particularly the front office staff. Our AC broke down on the second day. Well, it happens.... More

We stayed here for a few days to get some beach time. The property is very large and we were not expecting to have to drive to the beach. That being said, the hotel is beautiful, clean and quiet. The beach club is also very modern, clean and has all the amenities you need for the beach. We were very... More

The accommodation was semi detached bungalows. We had a standard one - no balcony but very spacious with fridge and coffee making facility. Beds very comfortable. The grounds are enormous and a shuttle bus every hour will take you to the beach club or the Marriott hotel. The restaurant served good food but menu was limited - beach club did... More

Hotel and Rooms: We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as a package tour. Rooms are large and luxurious, with quiet, efficient AC. Plenty of hot water, spacious bath tab and huge marbled shower. We did not like the toilet being located inside the shower area, the floor tends to stay wet and you need flip flops to use... More
